Traci is a teacher in training of relational somatic healing. Her approach is holistic and transpersonal, meaning she looks at and works with all aspects of your being – mind, body, soul, and spirit. She has had a lot of somatic training and mentoring in the Hakomi tradition, which is an experiential and mindfulness-based, body-centered approach to therapy. Her touch therapy work blends together craniosacral work, soul retrieval, past-life regression, intuitive reading, somatic body work, and energy medicine all into one. She practices relational somatic healing, and is also a Reiki practitioner.
